red shoes.



i pulled these heels out of my closet this morning, desperate to just get something down on paper without having to think about it. sometimes i think too much. plus i've only worn these shoes twice so at least they'll get worn on paper. i used a small piece of cardboard that i cut off of an old christmas gift box and a set of inexpensive oil pastels.  i like oil pastels because i can be hard on them.  it reminds me of coloring when i was little, holding the crayon with a fist and pressing down as hard as possible to get all of the color out. it was nice and freed me up to think about grander projects that i'd like to create in the near future.

i like the ruby red slippers. i'm tracking with you on the idea of just having to do something sometimes in order to get the juices flowing & dream about bigger projects...

happy weekend.
